Our USFS Permits allow us to offer Big Game hunts in three separate Colorado Game Management Units, Units 45, 48 and 49. Unit 45 includes portions of the Holy Cross Wilderness wilderness. Unit 48 includes portions of the Mt Massive Wilderness and Unit 49 lies within the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness. The unit 48 hunting area is bounded by Halfmoon  Creek to south and the top of Tennessee Pass to the north. The unit 49 area is bounded by the Lake County and covers the area from Granite to the top of Fremont Pass.  This is very rough and isolated country offering some excellent game. The Unit 45 hunting area is located north of Tennessee Pass on US Hwy 24 to the town of Red Cliff covering both sides of US Hwy 24. For complete maps please visit the Game Management Units mapping section of the Colorado Division of Wildlife website.
